Medicine Left Out Of Fridge

I accidently came home and discovered I had left my Injection Pen for Forteo Out of the refrigirator from 6 to 7 hours. I would suppose it is no longer good anymore.

I tried to call the hotline number but was told to call back Mon. thru Friday. They instructed me to call my Pharmacist. So I called him and he said he wasn't aware of the prescribing or all the requirements of Forteo. I was extremely surprised because he is a Pharmacist giving it out to people, and he doesn't know how to awnser questions about it?

I will just have to wait until Monday unless any of you know what the longest time you can leave it out before it begins to be ineffective anymore. Anyone know?

Don
